NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Jets have signed quarterback Mike White from the practice squad to serve as Sam Darnold’s backup in the season opener at Buffalo on Sunday. The team also promoted wide receiver Josh Malone and running back Josh Adams from the practice squad Saturday. All three players were among the Jets’ final roster cuts last week and then re-signed to the practice squad. As part of the NFL’s new collective bargaining agreement, game-day rosters were increased from 53 to 55 players. White will be Darnold’s backup because Joe Flacco was ruled out for the game as he recovers from neck surgery.
